Mekong Eyes Explorer Mekong River 4 stars

Mekong Delta Vietnam: Cai Be - Can Tho - Chau Doc - Phnom Penh
9.1Excellent - 5 reviews

Launched in 2016, Mekong Eyes Explorer is ideal for your journey in the tranquil Mekong River that links Southern Vietnam with Cambodia. The interior is designed in a colonial style, using local materials and handcrafted vintage decorations to provide the best overnight experience.

This 4-star boutique boat offers a 4-day trip to the most vibrant section of the Mekong River, where you can see the most interesting local's daily life. The cruise is designed to travel through the winding and narrow rivers and channels of the river system, which are inaccessible to bigger cruises. In that way, you can witness the hidden gem of the northern Mekong Delta.

Excellent - Mr.Robyn French

The cruise was everything we expected. Very nice thank you.

Excellent - Mr.David Skaggs

The cruise was outstanding, everything was first class, with slight exceptions

excursions were generally good but one floating garden visit would be sufficient; upgraded cabin was in aft area with more engine and generator noise

Very good - Ms.Sharon Goodwin

Great tour, boat was new and very nice. Suggestions are safety instruction was lacking. Rotating guests at dinner would be a good idea. We also noted that children in the villages liked to see us and use their English. Having a session where they ask us questions in English would be a way to connect… More

How much is the cost of the speedboat from phnom phnom penh to the mekon explorer boat if I book the 4 day cruise on with a suite?
Hi, If you book the Mekong Explorer 4 Days from PhnomPenh to Ho Chi Minh, we can pick-up at the hotels located 5km around Sisowath Quay. We do not sell only the speedboat ticket from PhnomPenh to Tan Chau Cheers
